I have a 2007 Tacoma double cab and wrote a post in here about it. I could not take it any more and found the problem myself. It is the flexible rubber hose coming off of the air filter going to the fender well panel for fresh air. I removed it and have not heard the sound again. I have been meaning to report it to Toyota. Mine only did it at high idle, in gear, then I noticed it at around 40 MPH. Hope this helps you with your noise problem. Russell (rko9869yahoo.com)

I fought this problem on my 2005 for over a year. Dealer could never repair, the high pitched noise at highway speeds. By chance when washing my truck and looking at the w/s seal I just happen to notice that where the black trim strip on the roof meets the seal (my case drivers side) had a slight gap and could be pushed down slightly.Apparently speed wind was forced into the very slight gap causing the high pitched noise. I lifted up slightly on the trim piece where it meets the w/s and injected a small amount of silicone adhesive. Noise gone and has not returned to date. Hope this helps.
#64 of 117 Toyota Prerunner Squeal: Solved!
Feb 03, 2008 (10:51 pm)
I have a 2001 Prerunner and had a squeal noise happen when I decelerated when I was at highway speeds. It troubled me for nearly a year.....sometimes it would do it, sometimes not. I took it to the dealer and the mechanic told me it was body rubber noise in the bed, nobody on the forum pages knew what caused it, I checked all wheels, brakes, etc. I FINALLY FOUND IT! On the Toyota Prerunner there is a split drive shaft with a "CARRIER" bearing on the cross member. However, there isn't a place to lube it. I attached a needle fitting to to my grease gun and pumped grease into the rubber boot on the carrier bearing, AND IT HASN"T SQUEALED SINCE!"

The prerunner has a split drive shaft with a carrier bearing at the cross member. Add a needle attachment to your grease gun and lube the carrier bearing by injecting grease through the boot. It stopped the squeal noise in mine.

I have a 95 Tacoma and have always had the same problem. I have done all that you suggested and asked dealer techs about it. Seems there is nothing that can be done? Here are the two things I suggest to stop it from annoying you: turn your a/c compressor on while stopped and the drag will cause the engine to idle up and stop vibrating OR simply put the truck in neutral which takes the drivetrain drag off the engine and stops the shimmy-shake. It has always frustrated me but I have come to live with it. I hope someone out there knows the secret!

my truck is in the shop at this moment and the're still trying to figure it out, they replaced the rear driveshaft and this solved the serious clunking and constant vibration that had developed from the original 45 mph thru. 65,but the vibration that started it all still exists! I put the truck up on jack stands and put it into 2nd gear and sped up to 28 mph and the vibration started, I then removed the rear tires and tried it again( to eliminate the tires as a possable noise problem) and the vibration still exists, (When you remove the rear tires you must put a couple lug nuts on to hold the brake drums on) I then put the truck into overdrive and the vibration started at 45 and quit at 65. I then removed the rear drive shaft( mark the shaft somehow so you can match it up with the front shaft the same way you took it off) and the vibration started at around 50 and quit at 70, I then removed the front shaft and the vibration went away. So does this mean that the vibration is caused by the front shaft or is there a problem in the tranny (such as a bad torque converter) that only transfers to the frame and stering colume when the front shaft is connected? I told the service center if this is exceptable vibration then do the save test to a new truck and if it does'nt exist then it's not exceptable! I'll post when I find out the answer.

Toyota has not fixed mine. It is not the tires, they swapped out all 4 tires and it still does it. They say it is engine virbration and it all Tacomas with Off Road package do it to some extent. Mine is worse. I have had dtruck for 4 months.
#71 of 117 Pulsating/vibrating 60-70ish mph
Feb 23, 2008 (6:58 am)
My 08 has what I would call a pulsating feel between 60-70 mph in drive line.This is only when applying power to drive, nothing when coasting at those speeds. I have had tires balanced and rotated by dealer and problem remains. Dealer now claims toyota is coming out with transmission mount fix that is supposed to correct problem, but I'm not buying that excuse. I've talked to toyota reps and dealer and believe I'm getting the old run around. I've seen others fight more severe problems with time and money only to come out on the losing end. My question is, Has anyone else had any similar issues, and what kind of resolve if any?
